(Please forgive duplications of this message.) Pat Rice, co-editor
of the Strategies in Teaching Anthropology series, has sent an
invitation to contribute to the new volume to be published next
year. I've pasted her message below. Here's a great opportunity to
share one of your favorite classroom projects with a wide audience.
October 1, 2008
To: Authors of Strategies in Teaching Anthropology, Vol 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
From: Pat Rice (on behalf of co-editors Dave McCurdy and Scott Lukas)
Re: Sixth volume/edition
Prentice-Hall has agreed to publish the sixth volume in the
Strategies in Teaching Anthropology series to be ready in time for
AAA meetings in November 2009, with a 2010 copyright date. We
cordially invite all of our previous authors to submit yet another
strategy for this new volume. Or, if you have an anthropology
colleague who seems to have an appropriate contribution, please pass
on this message.
In case you have forgotten, the details (rules) are:
· Strategies must be for introductory level courses (any
subfield or combination).
· Strategies must be about teaching important points or
concepts, not whole courses. 1-3 class sessions; work can be done in
or outside of class, with some in-class component.
· Strategies must focus on how to teach something, keep pedagogy
to a minimum.
· Keep writing relatively short, up to about 5 pp; diagrams are
· Write as if you are telling someone how to do what you do, use
"Do this" rather than "I do this."
· Use Word format; avoid extra formatting codes. Do not paginate.
With three editors now involved, I am acting as the
coordinator, so send all submissions to me. I will pass them on to
one or both of the other co-editors for their comments and we will
abide by majority rule. My email is: pat.rice@...
The only real change from submissions/acceptances from
previous volumes is that we are accepting--we are encouraging--early
submissions and will accept as appropriate. The absolute final due
date for all manuscripts is April 1, 2009. We are accepting
appropriate contributions between now and the final due date and must
close the door on acceptances at 180 pp. So send your questions
about whether your idea is appropriate or manuscripts as soon as
possible so you won't be left out.
